Someone living in a village in Leicestershire has to make a 200- mile round trip to attend a concert or an opera or a ballet or a play in London. If the performance ends promptly, he can hope to catch the last train home from a station on the far side of town, arriving in the early hours of the morning. If it over-runs and he stays for encores, he may have to wait on a platform until the milk train next day.
I feel I have done all that can reasonably be asked if I pay the price of a ticket and sit quietly throughout the advertised programme. I do not think it should be a condition of admission that I stay until the last enthusiast has exhausted his enthusiasm.
